What'd ya see today???

Recommended Posts

Just had the Thunderbirds fly over heading from AC to NY.  They are doing an air show down in AC but there is something going on at the Statue of Liberty.

 

Blue Angles, F-35 demo team and I think someone else is doing fly overs at the Statue also today.

There's going to be a flypast at the Statue Of Liberty with the F-35 demo team, Blue Angels, Thunderbirds and the RAF Red Arrows.

Not today, but yesterday... got to see quite a few pretty cool things, including one of the F-16s that was scrambled over DC on 9/11...

Just had a flight of four F/A-18 Super Hornets in diamond formation fly extremely low right over my kids and I while outside in downtown Austin. That was so epic and got them way excited!

That was the flyover for the F1 race at COTA.

Yeah it dawned on me about 15 minutes afterwards. It was just pure luck that we were literally right under the flight path at the exact moment they flew over. Blew my kids away.

i don't know if this really counts for inclusion in this thread, but I watched the documentary "Spitfire, The Plane that Saved the World" for maybe the third or fourth time.  I love watching almost all airplane related documentaries, but I have to say that this particular documentary is very, very moving, and it beautifully crafted, both in terms of spectacularly beautiful visual images, and in how they interwove the interviews with WWII Spitfire pilots and so much more.  If you've not seen this documentary, PLEASE do yourself a favor and see it!
